  • Hey All, we are looking to complete our line up with some Ottawa's best! We are currently looking to fill two spots, we need a Vocalist with pipes to grab your attention, who likes to be the center of attention at shows and gets a crowd moving. We also need a bass player who has the drive to sake the foundations and create a monster rhythm section with our hard hitting drummer! This is a new band we are starting to get in the groove of writing. Our goals are to Write, Record, play live both locally and out of town. We want people who are committed to music and love playing live. We are a a easygoing group and want to have a blast to see how far we can take this. All the members are veterans of the Ottawa music scene. There is NO EGO's and NO DRAMA wanted! We are in our 30's 7 & 40's. If this sounds like something you want, then send us a message with a little about you and any samples you may have.

  • Cover Band Seeking Sound Tech For Shows Cover band currently seeking applications for a sound technician to join our band to mix sound at our shows (paid).
    We are hoping to find someone to provide a consistent mix at shows, as well as attend rehearsals to learn our song-list as we prepare for live shows. For live shows, sometimes this will mean sitting at the mixing console and mixing all evening, other times for ‘lighter’ gigs just checking levels, balance and EQs throughout the evening to ensure they remain consistently good all night.
    We will be playing once or twice a month beginning September, and you will be paid as a band member for all gigs you work. We have some PA already but helpful if you have some equipment as well.
    You will have some experience mixing live bands, a good objective ear, and be able to ensure stage & PA balances, vocal/instrument levels, EQ and effects sound great at gigs.

  • Keyboard player sought Is there a keyboard player out there who
    a) Has skills
    b) Would genuinely like to be part of a band?
    c) A band that does covers?
    d) Isn’t in a lot of other projects?
    e) Genuinely enjoys the challenge of, and gets satisfaction from doing their keyboard parts using their ears and skills from the original recordings. You don’t necessarily go right to YouTube as your default strategy for learning music?
    f) Has a good ear and proven solid rhythmic sense; really comfortable with metronomes/rhythm machines/click tracks?
    g) Is a positive person, open in attitude generally, but especially to lots of different music (and it might be a cliché but), is a ‘team-player’; likes cooperating for the ‘greater good’ of the band. If so, reward for your skills, ears, conscientious and positive attitude, good practice habits, willingness to commit to a band, is ending up in a really good new band in the works. If you’re the right person I probably don’t have to put much more in this ad

  • Looking for a drummer to complete a band. So far, we are a singer, bassist and guitarist. This is intended to be a fun project; not looking to gig every weekend. We envision jamming every other week, and doing stuff like playing open jams and opening for other bands. We have jam space in Stittsville complete with a drum kit and PA but we can be flexible if circumstances dictate. We are experienced musicians/singers. Bassist can do backing vocals. Ideally the drummer can do so as well but it is not a deal-breaker. We want to play classic and modern rock, top-40 songs of today and yesteryear along with perhaps some more alternative stuff. For example, What's Up (4 Non Blondes), Ex's and Oh's (Elle King), Roxy Roller (Sweeney Todd), Tainted Love (Gloria Jones), Walking on Sunshine (Katrina and the Waves), Middle of the Road (The Pretenders), Rockin in the Free World (Neil Young), Proud Mary (CCR), Joey (Concrete Blonde), I Wanna Be Sedated (Ramones).

  • Are you an experienced guitarist with your own gear and transport? Do you like new challenges? Like to play different styles? If you rely on gigging and making money, this project isn't for you! We've all been there, and done that in spades. If however, you like the thought of recording and album and playing a few concert-style gigs with a group of seasoned, serious, dedicated, professional musicians, this may be for you.
    We are already well underway and are preparing to record an album to compete in the 2017 JUNOs in the world music category. What does that mean? Imagine a hard-rock band (Drums, Keyboards, Bass, Vocals, Guitar (You?)) that include bagpipes, fiddle, Irish whistles in a mix of original and cover tunes (Singing is in a mix of Scottish Gàidhlig and English), then you start to get an idea of how exciting this project is and the type of music we make.
    Sound interesting? Drop me an email, text or call me and I'll send you a link to the material we're preparing. Looking forward to hearing from you. // 613-805-3888
